‘How the iPhone 7 video should have been announced’: Bangkok comedian’s parody goes viral

Bangkok-based internet personality “Charles The French” has netizens cheering him on with his latest video “How the iPhone 7 should have been announced,” in which he mocks the controversial iPhone 7.

While the rest of the world complains about  iPhone 7 getting rid of headphone jacks and introducing wireless earphones (that you’ll likely lose), the Thai-French comedian used the opportunity to parody the iPhone 7 presentation that took place in San Francisco on Wednesday.

His video almost got 20 million views in one day.

“We got rid of headphone jacks! Why? Because we’re original. Originality does not mean good.”

Charles, 20, is a student at Assumption University who makes funny videos on Facebook with his friend Tada.
